NebraskaMATH - a 5-year, $9 million, Targeted Math Science Partnership designed to improve achievement in mathematics for all students and to narrow achievement gaps of at-risk populations.

NebraskaMATH is a $9.2 million grant awarded in 2009 from the National Science Foundation that supports a partnership among UNL, the four largest school districts in Nebraska, and Nebraska’s remaining 15 Educational Service Units. Over the life of the grant, the partnership will expand to become a statewide partnership that can be sustained after the end of NSF funding. The partnership is working to educate and support students and teachers at critical junctures, with an overall goal of improving achievement in mathematics for all students and narrowing achievement gaps of at-risk populations. The grant funds Primarily Math, Nebraska Algebra and New Teacher Network. In addition, NebraskaMATH offers a Summer Institute supported by local funds to continue the program created by its predecessor, Math in the Middle.
